a mission with sustainability in mind
Since we started the business, there are clearly three pillars that we hold to. one, bring the very best of Indonesian coffee. two, source responsibly. three, avoid animal cruelty.
Meramanis is an end-product brand of Kissia UG, a startup founded in 2021 by five Indonesian professionals who got together because of their love for coffee.
Our mission is to bring world-class coffee beans from Indonesia that are bought directly from the farmer and take part in developing farming and processing techniques.
Grew up in the city of Cirebon, Indonesia. Immediately fell in love with coffee after buying his first 3-kg roasting machine when he was in high school. Since then, he has self-thought himself how to taste, roast and brew coffee in the best possible way. Five years after he moved to Germany, he became one of the finalists in the 2022 German Brewers Championship. In addition, he is the first and only Q-Robusta Grader in Germany. The fire of bringing and popularising Indonesian coffee keeps rising. Finally, in autumn 2022, he joined a team of five Indonesians, launched a coffee roaster brand, Meramanis, alongside its flagship coffee shop located in Hansaring, Cologne.
